Priest and Hip Hop Artist Big O Join to Host “Making Tough Choices”

Wednesday, July 22, 2015
 
Hip hop artist Big O and Orthodox Christian priest Fr. Maximos McIntyre will speak about the challenges facing today’s youth at the Worcester Public Library on August 19 from 6 to 8 pm. The event is free and open to the public.

The full title of the event is: “Making Tough Choices: An Open Discussion with Today’s Youth on the Challenges of the Streets”.

“I lost my father to the fast life and see today, perhaps more than ever, the tough circumstances kids are placed in. The deck is stacked against them from the moment they are born. We have to empower them with true knowledge, not the harsh ways of the world, to give them a fighting chance,” said Fr. Maximos in response to why he decided to organize the event.

The topics covered will include violence, the illusions and false promises of the streets, and drug use and its consequences. In addition, there will be time allotted for attendees to ask questions.

Fr. Maximos McIntyre is the rector of Christ the Savior Orthodox Mission in Worcester. The parish has been in formation for only one year, but is attracting area residents from all walks of life.

Big O, from Worcester, has many full length releases and has opened for Snoop Dogg and Jadakiss.

Worcester Public Library is located at 3 Salem Square.
